Conan & Fox, The Courting Dance Heats Up!

We had a feeling it would work out this way!!

After weeks of speculation, insiders are now reporting that Conan O'Brien is in serious talks with Fox to create a new late night show for the giant ginge, and it's only a matter of weeks before formal meetings begin.

Although no one is talking about it openly, both are extremely serious about launching a new show by January at the latest, but given the overly publicized nature of the NBC disaster, are treading very lately and taking quite a few factors into consideration before a deal is reached.

News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch said last week:

"Certainly if the program people can show us that we could do it, and be fairly confident of making a profit on it, we'd do it in a flash. We're giving it a lot of thought and a lot of examination."

We can't imagine Fox venturing into late night talk with Conan would be anything BUT a success, but seeing how badly screwed Conan was on NBC, we're glad that both sides are taking the discussions very seriously and with clear, open communication!!

That's the way to do business!!

What do U think? Will U watch Conan if he's on Fox???

    i cant wait for Conan to be back on late night. i still think leno is KIND OF funny, but ive lost a lot of respect for him…he acted like a big baby. oh yeah and NBC sucks!



  8. 8

    I think he will have the same audience he had at NBC, about 2 and half million. He will be third behind Jay and Dave. He isn't as well liked as the other two.



  12. 12

    wuda been nice if hawt coco were in the commercial with let-her-man and the chinman.

    Conan wasn't funny before he landed the Tonight Show, wasn't funny on the Tonight Show (otherwise the ratings wouldn't have tanked), and he still isn't funny…so no, I won't watch, and only his diehard fans will watch on Fox (or any other network).



  14. 14

    Hell to the no. Dude wasn't funny before and he won't be now. Yes, his half a dozen jokes about NBC are funny but u can't tell em forever.

    What bothers me are the sheer amount of Conan supporters that haven't even watched latenight more than twice in their lives. Everyone is on this "coco" bandwagon stuff and jumping on Jay's badside and they haven't even watched latenight enough to know that outside of the NBC jokes, HE'S NOT FUNNY! Therefore if people want to shave your show down half an hr, its not their fault, its yours!

    I think people will watch him for a bit but as soon as the hype dies down, his ratings will be exactly where they were before. Hopefully, he can get a hold of some better writers in all of this to make him half decent.

    Take it from someone whose watched Jay and Conan for years, the guy is sometimes funny but not consistently enough to hold a show like the Tonight Show.



  15. 15

    mine



  16. 16

    Nope, not a fan. I Tivo Craig every night and watch him the next night… when Leno/Conan is on.



  17. 17

    WHY SHOULD THIS GUY HAVE A SHOW? FOR SOME REASON PEOPLE THINK HE SHOULD BE ON TV JUST BECAUSE NBC PUT HIM ON YEARS AGO. HES NEVER BEEN ANY GOOD, HE ISNT FUNNY AND HE DOESNT HAVE THE RATINGS. HE SHOULD GO AWAY. IF FOX SIGNS HIM HELL BE 3RD PLACE FOREVER

    Re: tasha

    Letterman and Leno will be losing their audience to nursing homes soon.

    The applicant has a history of problems with authority…



  20. 20

    I will watch Coco wherever he goes



  21. 21

    "are treading very lately"
    please
    just stop it!



  22. 22

    Not my favorite TV personality! Not funny, not entertaining, just silly.



  23. 23

    Conan has never been funny unless he has somebody funny on his show. And Leno did nothing wrong in any of this. I'm sick to death of people bitching about Leno. Conan is self-absorbed and boring.



  24. 24

    No, Conan is adolescent at best, he sucks.
